This past week was very busy with some friends in town, but even so, I’ve been able to continue this nice little writing streak I’ve had. I’ve been able to make myself get up early in the mornings (even when out too late) to write before work, and have written several pages. I also have two ideas for two new novels, and I’m excited to get to work on one once this current one is written. I’ll feel much better about setting it aside for a bit before revisions if I’m working on something new.
It’s Valentine’s Day weekend, and starting Friday morning I’ve seen quite a few people carrying roses around. My grocery store this morning had a table set up to wrap flowers, and had some boxes of chocolates, rose petals, etc., in the front produce section (and ended up putting these next to the mushrooms?). For my part, I’m going to try my hand at New York style chocolate cheesecake. I’ve never made cheesecake, so this may be a little ambitious on my end. I’ll update to let you all know how it turns out. If it’s a fail, well then…at least I have a box of brownie mix as a backup.
